Your Legacy. Your Story.
Your Legacy. Your Story.
This thoughtful/unique presentation on leadership and legacy, will focus on what it takes, specifically in the speaking industry, to live and leave a legacy that will spread beyond your current clients; perhaps beyond your lifetime. As any profession/industry matures and evolves, legacies become an integral part of that process. In every part of the journey, challenges are met, experienced, and overcome. They all contribute to the ever-evolving legacy. Those who are aware of what’s gone on before, not only shorten their learning curve, but we have the opportunity to contribute to the collaborative and public legacy that is known as professional speaking. In summarizing where the journey began, why it’s important, and how each speaker contributes, we can discover the evolution of both our personal and collective legacies.
